    Pre-Booking : Should it be mandatory?

    I have a question for you guys, do you think pre-booking should be mandatory with 2012 coming soon? Most agencies do offer it these days, some more partially, other more completely, there is always these last minute addition but overall some agency try to keep there pre-booking solid. We all know that SPs are human and can cancel under some circonstance, part of the business, but do you think every agency should offer a pre-booking for at least 2 days ahead.

    For exemple i noticed that lately Devilish/Girls on Fire, wich was at the time i started "hobbying" the giant of the industry, don't receive as many reviews as they used to. The whole review process is slow down too, im aware of that, where previously there would be 2 pages of new review every week, now we don't have to scroll down too much to get older reviews, but i notice on merb they have less reviews than back in the time. Could that be because of the pre-booking system being totally absent for them?

    I know this business is a different one that your typical "job" so i can understand they can sometimes not want to commit to a weekly schedule, but still....


    If you live in montreal i guess its no big deal, you check the adds around 3 pm, see if the girl you want is avalaible, if she is, then you book her and finding a room is not big deal... But when you are out of town, then it may become impossible to see a lady you want on those website.

    So my question would be, what you think of that? Should a "next day" pre-booking be mandatory on any agencies?

    I HATE PREBOOKING.

    Once i prebooked, there was a misunderstanding, I wasnt there when the girl showed up.
    Almost got banned from the agency.

    Ill never prebook again ! LOL

    I always had problems pre-booking. Since I'm in the hobby it's been one disaster after another when I prebook. From bait and switch to 2-3 hour delays to no-shows.
    So my motto is : i eat what's on the menu today

    I'm a big fan of prebooking. I don't use GOF or Devilish very much becuase they have no prebooking and I have to wait past 3PM to see who I want to see for the same day. If I have a day free, I much rather prebook to make sure I am getting a girl I really want instead of picking the best of who is available at the time. In saying that, I understand the business and know my bookings will not always come through and I will be left scrambling the same day when she cancels (which is actually fun sometimes). It's still useful because prebookings are good about 75% of the time. If an agency like GOF thinks it's too much of a hassle to prebook, I understand. Unfortuneately my business will lean towards those agencies that do.

    I would prefer to call only when the urge hits me but pre-booking is the best way to ensure quality. So I usually pre-book as far in advance as possible but them I have to live with the anticipation until the time comes and that I find hard. To avoid disappointments it is wise to confirm the appointment at least 2 hours beforehand.

    If someone wants to see me when he wants, prebooking is a must, also I found out the hard way that same day request are often pranks and that if someone is serious he will not mind having to wait 2 days or more before having his gratification...

    Johnmbot : The business is what it is right now cause nobody actually teach them how to behave... I mean, if a 16 y.o kid can be on schedule at a gas station or a mcdonald or whatever, so a 18 y.o + lady on the escort business. Problem is, people(both "pimps" as you say, or the escort herself) see this as some kind of free for all run of fun... Thecnically its a job... you have a boss, you have clients, so when you work a job, you should follow your schedule. They can even make there own schedule.. how fun is that? LOL at least respecting it should be the least they can do.

    Judas : Would i be in montreal, i would had no problem waiting for the day the girl i want to see is online... its not like you need a bunch of days to prepare. you need basically 1 hour or less to find a room(or if you see her at your home, clean a bit) and shower... But im not in town.... so i have to use the bus, make sure everything is on schedule... its a lot of preparation

    Snoodle : errors where made somewhere... i mean normally if the both of you agree on an hour, its easy to respect it, book when you know for sure you can be there, not when you guess you gonna have finish work or whatever....

    spacecadet : Your unlucky... so far everything has been for me, the worst i had was an hour delay... I had 2 girl turn around but it was because of the hotel... first time i tough it was unlucky... that i got a "sassy girl" but when number 2 happened, i had to resolve not using this hotel anymore... sucks cause it was awesome... nice room, nice personal, good price... but just because its on st-hubert, escorts see it badly....

    Dewar : Yeah usually i always call back before going to take the bus or whatever, to be sure its still good, but its as far as i can go, if the girl start at 7 pm, got to take the bus around 2-3... thats last contact i can have, past that, it will be too late for me, so its either plan B or call it an expensive waste of time of 80 bucks in bus...

    It will NEVER be mandatory, nor should it be, agencies and girls would lose to much money from the cancellations and no shows with not always someone ready to fill that time slot at that moment. Same thing if the girl cancels on the client. Prebooking is nice for guys who like that sort of thing but i agree with whomever said earlier that this is a "impulse biz". It has its niche, but will never be mandatory, at least not to maximize profits, as far as agencies go, Indy's however is a whole different ballgame.

    I agree with johnmbot... But this business is what it is... If a girl makes a lot of money one night, she IMPULSIVELY decides she wont come in the next day.. It's the nature of the game. And if shes a popular girl, there's no way a boss or pimp will fire her. With the number of escort agencies in montreal and massage parlors, she can start working the same day !

    Its supply and demand in it purest form. lol

    I strongly prefer to pre-book, but it's pretty difficult to organize a trip. I've always ended up needing to call one of the same-day agencies from time to time.

    Pre-booking is also risky if you count on it. I had a major agency cancel my appointment made 4 days ahead and confirmed the day ahead (they said it was a misunderstanding), then refuse to honor my appointment since canceling with the person they'd just scheduled the girl with a few hours earlier wouldn't be fair to him.

    You need to count on a certain degree of flakiness throughout this industry.

    There is no way I can pre-book. The nature of my job, I'll be called to anywhere at a moment's notice. I may be in Fresno and have to be in Montreal that night. There are sometimes I know two or three days in advance. I have been scheduled to Montreal and suddenly go to Phoenix, or Cleveland. If pre-booking becomes mandatory, I'll be SOL, or have to do it myself.
    I'd like to book more Independents, but if they require pre-booking, they won't have the pleasure of my company. Well... uh... that might be.. their advantage. hmm..
    As far as Devilish/GOF reviews, it's not because of pre-booking. I don't know about anyone else, but I haven't seen a Devilish/GOF lady in about a year. I've been seeing other agency's ladies, mainly because I won a free hour and couldn't collect because they wouldn't answer PMs and emails and nobody knew what was going on. I quit calling them.

    Hello HM,

    You seem to have two ideas here. Running an escort agency where employee working times are by choice (hopefully) and clients usually call on impulse makes mandatory pre-booking unworkable. Your own post notes the impracticality.

    Then again it would amount to fraud for the agency to offer pre-booking some escorts who don't have the character to be reliable.

    Why every agency doesn't offer some pre-booking is a lack of foresight risking loss. There is a risk clients who pre-book may cancel. But relying on booking all ladies available in one night for every time slot must be just as risky.

    I've had a great deal of success either making confirmed pre-booked appointments or taking the chance of making unconfirmed pre-booked appointments conditional on the notice of the lady to work that day and time. As long as the agencies are honest about the situation and the risk the lady will not choose to work I've been willing to take that chance and it's turned out well overall.

    But trying to shoehorn the business into one mode of operation isn't possible or workable in my view.

    Good luck,

    Merlot
